It's almost noon, but your feet itchy? Do you need exercise but do you really want to get into the quiet nature? Then off to the climatic health resort of Falkenberg! In just over an hour with the RE3 or the RB24 from Berlin via Eberswalde, the cute RB60 will bring you to the small community on the hilly Barnim plateau, rich in forests and lakes. Here on the border to the Oderbruch you get out and see the Falkenberger Heights in the background. Passing the Rothen Mühle at the small brook, you go straight into the first ascent.
Over the ridge path to the märkischen Watzmann
You first hike on the Oderlandweg through beautiful forest. Continue on the Kammtrail to the junction to the Bismarck Tower. The 20-minute detour will be worthwhile for you. Around a hundred steps and another 30 meters in altitude via a wooden spiral staircase have to be overcome to the viewing platform. Here you can enjoy the wide view over the hills and gorges of the Oberbarnimer Mountains and the Niederoderbruch with the island of Neuenhagen, the Niederfinow boat lift and the Schorfheide. The view is particularly impressive in autumn, when the dense beech forests in the most beautiful shades of red are inflamed - the Brandenburg “Indian Summer”.
